You can use the following code:

StatusBar sBar = new StatusBar();

And based on your frame/panel, and the direction you would want to place your status bar (I guess SOUTH), you can use,

this.add(sBar, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

hope this helps..

or if u are doing applets, u can use showStatus methods..

You can simply use a JLabel for your status bar. Set the frame's layout to BorderLayout, and add the JLabel to the south of the frame.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

mehtas suggested using StatusBar class. Is there such a class?

vemul suggested using showStatus method. Only Applet has this method, but the questioner seems to be referring to stand-alone applications. Is there such a method in Frame, JFrame, Dialog or JDialog?

If the answers to the above two questions are no, then why accept their answers?
